Emily Collins BSc Hons, PG Dip
I am a fully qualified counsellor, offering a safe, non-judgemental space, for people to explore their emotions and issues that are troubling them.
I am a member of the BACP, and I have experience of working with young people and adults with a variety of issues, including relationship problems, low self esteem and work related stress.
I appreciate how difficult it can be to seek help during difficult times, I also understand that taking yourself outside of your comfort zone, is often part of the process of growing and making positive changes in your life.
For me, the most important aspect of counselling is not about the therapists qualifications or experience, it is their ability to offer respect and empathy. To me, the therapeutic relationship is without doubt the most important part of effective therapy.
My clients have described their experience of counselling sessions, as a space where they feel fully accepted and respected, which has allowed them to make positive changes in their lives. I have been described by clients as non judgmental, understanding and warm.
You may have had experience of counselling before, and there are lots of different types of therapy on offer, which can make choosing a therapist confusing. Initially,I offer a free thirty minute consultation. This initial meeting is an opportunity for you to discuss some of the things you would like to get from therapy and for us both to decide if we are comfortable to start counselling together.
